The Nursing Excellence Award goes to a member who has made significant contributions to advanced practice psychiatric nursing, the mental health profession, and the clients we serve. We are proud to honor Ginni Buccola.
Ginni is an expert in maternal and infant mental health and speaks across the country on that topic. She is also leading by creating a role in a primary care setting as we move into more integration between primary care, mental health, and substance use disorder treatment. This is the mandate for the future of mental health treatment in Washington state.
